Introducing Flexiseq®...
Flexiseq is a topically applied gel. Flexiseq is specially formulated to ease joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Daily application in the morning and evening is enough to start to bring about real improvement in joint pain in as little as two days.

What is Flexiseq®?
Flexiseq is a gel which is applied topically to the affected joint and works by penetrating into the synovial fluid between the bones, restoring some of the lubricating properties lost through the breakdown of cartilage.

It is this loss of cartilage that is responsible for the pain and reduced mobility in osteroarthritis.

The benefits of Flexiseq®

  • Can help ease the pain and stiffness in your joints
  • Suitable for all osteoarthritis patients
  • A safe drug-free gel that avoids the heart and stomach risks common to most osteoarthritis drug treatments
  • Can be used safely with medicines for osteoarthritis and/or other medical conditions

How to use

1. Apply twice daily to the affected joint. It is recommended that you apply FLEIXSEQ in the morning and at night to skin that is clean and dry.

2. Use enough gel to evenly cover the whole joint. For example, when treating the knee, we recommend using a gel length of around 7cm (roughly half the length of the FLEXISEQ 50g tube).

3. It is important to allow FLEXISEQ to dry before covering. Failure to do so may impair the absorption of the product. The gel should dry after no more than 15 minutes. If drying time takes longer, just use a little less next time.

 
Frequently Asked Questions...
Can I apply Flexiseq directly to my joints?
It should not be applied directly over the bone, but to the soft tissue around it to allow it to penetrate through to the synovial fluid between the bones. It should also be allowed to dry, which may take about 10 minutes. The active component of the gel will only begin to penetrate through the tissues once it has dried on the surface.

How quickly does Flexiseq take to work?
The pain relief appears to improve with repeated application. Whilst the manufacturers claim easing of symptoms can be experienced in as little as 2 days, realistically this would take 2 weeks…but then still continues to improve gradually over 12 weeks. This was seen to be almost comparable to oral celecoxib.

Who should not use it?
Anybody with skin lesions or any dermatological conditions in the treatment area should not use Flexiseq as its safety and efficacy has not been tested in such individuals. It should also not be used where they have already been prescribed another topical treatment, such as an NSAID gel..

Is Flexiseq available on prescription?
No. Flexiseq is classed as a medical device and is not included in the relevant section of the Drug Tariff. Therefore cannot be prescribed on NHS prescriptions.

 
Real Life Stories

Paul O'Hea, 29, a successful All-Ireland MFC player and pharmacy owner, found his football career cut short by an injury, but Flexiseq is helping him to play on.

I use Flexiseq myself and I find it very good. I broke my leg playing football for the Derry Uner-21's and I have a plate and five screws in my knee. I'm still playing - we're back training at my club at the end of next week. I've eased off the gel at the minute as its offseason, but whenever I go back training, doing impact sessions, I start up on it again.

My wife's grandmother has arthritis and it's really working for her too. She says its brilliant. It's a great product.

PPharmacy worker Tracy Arnold couldn't even get up a stepladder at work because of a chronic pain in her knees, but the mother of one say Flexiseq is helping her.

I gave some to my next door neighbour who has oesteooarthritis and he said Flexiseq had changed his life. So, I thought I should really try it myself because I have osteopenia (OP) and probably a bit for arthritis as well.

I've been using it now for four weeks. Within two days, I found a big difference in my knees. I'm not getting the horrible crunching feeling I used to get from all the bending. I can't use anti- inflammatories because I'm an asthmatic, so Flexiseq is perfect for me. It's making my life so much easier.

Professional football coach Rodney Dalzel feared he'd have to quit his job training Britain's top goodkeepers until Flexiseq, a drug-free gel for arthritis saved the day.

I have arthritis in both legs. As an elite goalkeeping coach I demonstrate a lot, so I'm diving 300 or 400 times a session and well, it's not good for the knees.

I've had operations on both knees but they haven't made any difference. Flexiseq has though. I'm walking around the place now with a spring in my step. I'm in safe hands - Flexiseq has meant I don't have to stop doing my job.

Osteopath and arthritis sufferer Ken Brooks, 49, knows all about joint pain - from professional and personal experience.

Until I tried Flexiseq, I couldn't get up the stairs. both of my knees and my hips were cracked. Then I tried the gel. To test it, I only applied it to my right knee - the worse one.

Within days, it was better than the left one. I couldn't believe the difference. I had more mobility in my right knee and it even looked better, less swollen than the other one.

Flexiseq has changed my life and several of my patients, for the better.

Nursery Nurse Sue Sharp's arthritis was so painful she couldn't even cudle the tots in her care. Now, thanks to this new drug-free "wonder gel", the nanny's toddler can't keep up with her in the playground.

My arthritis was especially bad in the knees from all the bending down I do as a nursery nanny. If I bent down, I couldn't get back up unaided.

My dad calls Flexiseq his wonder gel. So I put it on my knees twice a day and within a week the pain had gone and my mobility had returend. It's magic.
